A look at a rather dated thriller
10 November 1998 | by (Tasmania) – See all my reviews

Despite the title and an opening sequence that shows a Sputnik launching, this is a rather glum spy thriller that uses the then new-and-exciting topic of satellites merely as a "McGuffin" on which to hang a very ordinary plot

  • be warned this is NOT a space film! Steve Brodie is an unexciting hero,


and this set-in-Vienna thriller is no THIRD MAN. Camera work is competent, but that just means the occasionally pleasing piece of filming just reminds us how dull the dialogue and the under-rehearsed cast are the rest of the time. No wonder Australian television showed it at 3 a.m.
